Guest recapper this week is our very own Infant – @GLBali. Thus, the recap is rated PG13 (just kidding!) Thanks, Gracie for your awesome take on this episode. All amazing gifs by the talented @neropatti. Note: I’ve posted as separate pages to allow you to comment on each page.
40 miles (64 kilometres for those of us using the metric system) South of O’ahu Steve has taken his BFFITWWW, Danny fishing. Steve (as proof the writers follow us on twitter and on our blogs) is rocking his straw hat. Score one for the Sun Smart people of the world. He has, however, failed the next part of the course, as shirts for sun protection customarily come with sleeves. But! He is wearing his UDT (Underwater Demolition Team – McNerd moment 7894)/SEAL shirt and the guns are on display, so I assume there is sunscreen action going on there and we are able to move on.
Danny does not own a t-shirt. He wore the one t-shirt he owns (that black one, don’t pretend like you don’t know what I am talking about) when he had to rescue his BFFITWWW from North Korea. Because he doesn’t want to make Steve emo, he has kindly disposed of it, but now has no t-shirts to wear. This is a clear hint that Steve should be buying Danny a t-shirt for his birthday. Or Christmas. Danny for what we can only assume, will not be the last time, comments on Steve’s need to drive his (brand spanking new, yet almost identically the same) Camaro. Steve informs Danny that they are on a mission to catch his first tuna fish and it becomes clear the two are not on the same wavelength when it comes to ideal fishing trips. These two are having a boatgument. It is something about moving vehicles that lulls these two into arguments, as opposed to lulling them to sleep (oh I think that might only be babies).
Danny enquires if Steve has gotten any word on his mother, which he hasn’t. It seems Cath is still looking into Momma McG for Steve as she is still on that fantastic amount of leave the US Navy gives to people. Danny points out that Steve is having his girlfriend check up on his mom. Steve reminds Danny that Cath is NOT his girlfriend (and rightly so, this guy has major issues, is the King of Emos, I should know I live in Emo Land) and that she is using her Naval Intelligence contacts to get more information on Steve’s mother. The navy, obviously, is experiencing some quiet time on the international scene, allowing Lieutenant Too Clueless To Realise He Won’t Score With Cath, to use government resources to check up on a former CIA operative. Danny and Steve agree that spies, especially women spies, KNOW things, and really Steve’s mission isn’t going to end well. McCath fans all over the world are sitting on the edge of their seats when Danny presses Steve to define his and Cath’s relationship querying, “what is it with Navy SEALs? They’re not allowed to have girlfriends?” Steve throws some words together, they do make a sentence, but clearly all those years of Navy school didn’t cover how to answer questions about your maybe/maybe not girlfriend. Thus we can conclude that the easiest way to outsmart a SEAL, or at the very least, how to make him uncomfortable is to start talking about his girlfriend. Steve admits he hasn’t told Mary about their mother’s return when the moment is stopped from being too awkward because Danny’s line has finally caught a bite. Danny tells Steve to stop “backseat fishing” and Steve’s reaction to his BFFITWWW catching his first fish is absolutely priceless.
